At the conclusion of one of the most divisive years ever in British and American politics, it’s particularly important to remember that the issues being debated involve real consequences for real, everyday people, every day. Which is why we find ourselves applauding Brit songstress Abisha for rushing the pre-Christmas release (while everyone is so distracted with the holidays) of the video for her poignant new single “Love Like This,” which celebrates the beauty of young love, while also standing up for LGBTQIA+ acceptance.

But 2020 has a few serious scares to throw our way well before then – with the January and February movie release slates notably featuring The Turning and The Lodge , respectively. The Turning is from Canadian-Italian director Floria Sigismondi, always well-regarded for her fearless plunges into the more caliginous depths of existence (as well as her astonishing music videos for Bowie, Björk, Marilyn Manson).
In Paris, every day is an adventure. Whether you’re exploring Monet’s at Musée Marmottan, sipping hot chocolate at Angelina, seeking out the city’s latest hotspot for drinks or spending the day browsing through the shops and boutique…
Photo by Jeff Forney For all the positive vibes, wheat germ colonics, and celebrity yoga retreats, La La Land has always had a particularly dark underbelly. If you don’t believe us, it has been astutely documented: John Fante, and his literary progeny Charles Bukowski, gave us reports from skid row; Christopher Isherwood and Brett Easton Ellis modern tales of drug fueled depravity and homosexual longing. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, David Lynch was always good for a reminder – i.e

Just 45 at the time – young for an architect – he had mostly built in Spain and Switzerland. But our excitement could hardly be contained, and our only thought was that we must get over there to see it…immediately

Like all good Francophiles / students of la révolution , we’d done the usual half-day trips from Paris. But for the first time earlier this year, we actually checked into a hotel for a couple of nights in the royal city of Versailles – in the process decisively confirming there is much more to recommend it than its eponymous, breathtakingly opulent Château .
